Wow that is a lovely idea and a lovely piece. I need to find a small-toothed cutter now for a saw maybe a Dremel cutter attachment - what did you use?

Be a good one for an Old West setting too...

Golgotha,  The saw blade is from one of those pattern tracers that sewers use. It's plastic.
I cut it in half and painted it metal.

A superbly built ramshackle saw barn in a very nice vignette. Well done!
BTW, what is the power source for the saw?

The power source is an underground stream.

Not easy to find one of these commercially. Excellent work!

Nice model.  But it did make me ask when circle saw blades came into use.  It appears 1777 in England, seems later in the U.S. 

Wondering if you had some source material for such a saw mill during the AWI? 

Not that it really matters, it is still a nice model and as others said, will fit in other periods.

Very nicely done.

You may, however, wish to give some thought as to how the saw is powered lest irritating rivet counters like me pose the question. Mechanical, circular saws, pre the age of steam, tended to be water powered and were usually found near or adjacent to sources of running water. You probably want a stream and water wheel somewhere nearby.
